LeBron James Gets Incredible Tattoo To Return To The Court

It's not a secret that NBA players are huge tattoo fans. Moreover, LeBron James has shown off his sick ink even since before he made it to the league 18 seasons ago.

It's not unusual to watch NBA players get most of their bodies covered in tattoos all of a sudden. From D'Angelo Russell to Jordan Clarkson or Lonzo Ball, it just happens as fast as if you were customizing them on NBA 2K.

And now, tattoo enthusiasts are having a blast with LeBron James' latest addition, as The King just showed how his leg art is going with an incredible tattoo featuring Jason, Freddy Kruger, and American Psycho.

Clearly, LeBron James is a huge fan of horror films and wants to show that he's got that 'Killer Mentality' with some scary ink as well, even if his haters will somehow find the way to call him out for this.

Whether you're a fan of LeBron's tattoos or not, you can't deny the fact that the rest of the NBA must be scared of the thought of a well-rested LeBron ahead of the playoffs.

The Los Angeles Lakers have yet to win a game since James returned to the court with a high-ankle injury and are in serious jeopardy of falling into the play-in tournament. Then again, this is not the kind of guy you want to bet against come playoff time.

Before his injury, LeBron was one of the top MVP candidates, averaging 25.0 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game to go along with 1.0 steals and 2.4 three-pointers on 51/36/70 shooting splits.

So, yeah, even if he's not getting any younger and even if you like his new tattoos or now, you should be wary of counting him out already. Or, just as it happens with Freddy Kruger, you better no sleep on him.
